5 Great sound quality, Good value at a reasonable price.Darkstar | 19/11/2008 | See all Darkstar's reviews (87)Top 100 Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer Top 100 Games Reviewer Top 100 Music Reviewer The first thing you'll notice over using a standard cable is the sound quality. I had both attached to the TV and watched Sky, flicking between the two you instantly saw the difference in both vision and, more noticeably, the sound quality. It was like going from mono to stereo and watching a music channel, I could hear a lot more of the sound than ever before, it delivered a much warmer, richer and more rounded sound with much less interference which I hadn't really noticed on the old cable before I switched to this scart lead. The Gold plating, as well as the shielding etc, really do make a difference and now I have got gold plated HDMI cables as well and that makes a difference yet again.The cable is quick thick but there is a lot going on in the shielding, if you go on their website you can see exactly what this is made of and for those in the know I would recommend it as then you know exactly what you are getting. This feels like a good quality lead, I've seen cables which are very thin and therefore probably don't have any shielding around the different wires and which could lead to interference from other cables etc.There isn't much more to say other than you can spend lots of money buying cables and I would always say don't buy the cheapest or the most expensive but somewhere in the middle, at the end of the day for most normal people there isn't much between them, it is only the hardcore few who can tell the difference.
